    Default Faulty Graphics card EBAY Rant

    Bought a ATI 9600 off ebay the other week and it arrived yesterday so thought id install it today on my other system

    But as soon as i booted up i thought i was in trouble as there's artefacts all over screen so carried on and installed drivers and still the same

    Now he charged me £5 postage and it cost him £2.98 to post and ive been on to ebay to him and told him its faulty and his reply was


    Hi Don,

    Have you installed the correct drivers for this graphics card?
    It sounds like the motherboard is not compatible with the graphics card and it's over heating or you may have damaged it when installing it.
    If you can prove to me that this item is generally faulty on arrival then I'll be happy to give a refund.
    lol does he think im stupid my X800 works fine in the machine its just i wanted to keep it as it cost me over £100 and its a good card so Motherboard is fine.

    Now ive told him that its DOA and i want my money back but can i ask him to pay me for sending it back to him ?

    And how does he want me to prove it was generally faulty on arrival apart from telling him it was

    File a complaint with paypal - hope you payed that way? - and say it arrived not as described. After all you don't order a broken one do you

    It might be pushing it as it's only gonna cost a couple of quid.

    But I know what you mean.

    If it's a business then yes they should pay. If private you'd probably have to pursue it through the small claims which for a few quid wouldn't be worthwhile. Best bet us paypal dispute and you'll get your money back.

    Remember the jiffy bag costs money as well as the postage (thats why its Postage & PACKAGING).

    Sounds like he's trying to dodge you sending it back. Give him a reasonable attempt to agree to send it back, failing that go straight to PayPal with a dispute and let them sort it out.

    Did it arrive in an anti-static bag?

    lol ive just read this on the ebay listing page where someone has asked him a question

    Q: Is this guarentee to work? The discription reads: The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. You say you have never used it, did you test it in another machine? Looking a replacement card for a childs pc and this one would be great if it is guarenteed to work. Thanks 17-Jul-10
    A: I bought it off another ebayer last year but it wouldn't fit in my machine so I never tried it. It said it was in working condition and I have had it safely stored since I bought it. If for any reason it doesn't work I'll be happy to give a full refund. The cosmetic wear part is something that ebay add to your description when selling an item as used.


    So if he hasn't tested it how the hell does he know it works

    ASlso he sounds like he is trying to baffle you with bull$hite.
    He might have bought it for himself and fouind it did not work. So is now selling it on.
